In Week 3, the Dallas Cowboys (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) in a battle of the undefeated teams. This is an intriguing battle however, as the Cowboys will be without a number of key players. When fully healthy, it’s hard to argue the Cowboys are the better team, but they must now line up without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant.

Losing a star wide receiver would hurt any team, but to lose the quarterback a week later is just devastating to a team’s playoff hopes. Let’s not forget that a big reason for their success in 2014 was the rushing ability of DeMarco Murray, who is now in Philadelphia. But this game is far from decided.

Even without their stars, the Cowboys still boast a strong roster that is capable of winning football games. After losing Romo last week, Dallas still played strong to finish off Philadelphia. Can the Falcons keep their undefeated streak going? Here’s the tale of the tape.
